Circuito Chico

Great walk and make the Llao Llao climb if you can

We quickly lost sight of all other visitors on the trail and really enjoyed the trees, lakes and especially the climb to the top of Cerro Llao Llao. Spectacular views of the mountains. Take some water and appropriate clothing as it is a decent trek.
